The Partnership Party was a huge success!
THANK YOU! Our 11th Annual Partnership Party was an amazing night because of your generous support. Take a look at some of the photos from this memorable, heartfelt night at the JX Event Venue. Our thanks to Vickey Weiss Photography for providing the photos.
We celebrated the final appearance of Duke, the horse sculpture made by Michael Finch, a 10th grader at Stillwater Area High School. Michael got a standing ovation from the crowd when he talked onstage with host Bill Lunn. Our Live Auction was one of our best to date and our Special Appeal really seems to have resonated with our community. Our generous donors at the gala helped us raise funds for an initiative to implement a new program called Yoga Calm in every elementary school. more details
Click on the picture below to see a video describing the results of a Yoga Calm pilot project in Lake Elmo Elementary School this year. You’ll see why lots of teachers are clamoring for this program. It teaches students specific techniques they can use to self-regulate their behavior, and it has a built-in kindness component that gives students practice with complimenting one another. If you haven’t already, please consider a donation to support this important program.
